Thinking of you all at this sad time. Good memories working at the Blue Onion when I was just 15.

Dear Larsen Family, My deepest condolences on the passing of your mother. I remember Claris as always having smile, laughing, and a twinkle in her eye. Claris was just so much fun to be around. She was a wonderful and caring friend to my Mom throughout their lives and I will always be grateful to her for the love and support she gave her. I have fond memories of your home on 33rd Street, hanging out in the backyard and jumping on your tramp. I hope the memories you have of your mom bring you comfort and peace. Kelly

My condolences to the Larsen family. I remember your mother well from hanging with Jeff during high school. Nice lady for not just strangling a bunch of teenagers - shows what great patience she had. RIP, Claris.

Dear Lynda, Jeff, Mark, Kent, Chad, and family, I am so saddened to learn of the passing of dear Claris. I have such fond memories of her during my years on 33rd Street. She was always a wonderful person to me and all of us. She remained a steadfast friend for my mother throughout her life. The last time I saw Claris was on my mom's 80th birthday, when we went to Maddox. It was such a treat to see her again. My heartfelt condolences. Sincerely, --Robert Glasmann

My sincere condolences to the family. Mere words cannot take away the pain of losing a love one to death, but please take comfort in knowing that God cares about the suffering we face, and He promise that "death will be no more" and all those in the memorial tombs will hear his (Jesus) voice and come out. (Revelation 21:4 ; John 5:28,29)
